DownUnderGround series 10 is kicking off with a video round supported by Freestyle Now. The video round is open to all riders who will enter the following 2 events. Entries for the video round close 30th september 2018. The classes are beginner, expert and open.
"The concept is simple: Film a bmx flatland contest run 1:30 to 2 minutes long as if you were in contest conditions. It can be filmed on any device, quality of video is not important. You are judged on the quality of your riding not the quality of the video. Dont have backing music (copyright issues) Once you have it filmed, run through a edit program to compress it. (We have had issues with videos sent raw) and then send to us and then we will load to our youtube channel. The videos will be judged by our judging panel with the videos going live in order of placing."

Two real artists teamed up for this video! Sevisual behind the camera and Benjamin Hudson in front of it. Ben was in hungary for a few days and they made very good use of that time. Even Ben is stoked on the result: "since i started riding one, of my biggest motivation was videos, especially Sevisual ones because of the balance between the riding level and how good the video looked in general. Now 9 years later im in one of them, thats dope"
